Neutron stars are remarkable celestial bodies that push the boundaries of what we know about the universe. These incredibly dense objects, formed from the remnants of massive stars, possess a mass greater than that of our own Sun, yet are condensed into a sphere no larger than a city. Within the cores of neutron stars,

Uranus, the seventh planet from the Sun, has hydrogen sulfide in its atmosphere, giving it a smell reminiscent of rotten eggs. Recently, astronomers have discovered the same foul-smelling gas on an extreme exoplanet known as HD-189733b. This Jupiter-sized exoplanet, located in the Milky Way, exhibits a signature of hydrogen sulfide, shedding light on the role

In 2017, scientists identified an exoplanet named LHS-1140b as one of the most promising places to find signs of life outside our Solar System. This alien world has now become even more peculiar. It appears to be an ‘eyeball’ planet, with a massive global ocean covered in ice, and a single, iris-like region measuring approximately

The moon, our constant companion in the night sky, holds many mysteries. Among these mysteries are the enigmatic lunar swirls – bright patches on the lunar surface that have puzzled scientists for centuries. These swirls, such as the well-known Reiner Gamma swirl, have defied explanation since their discovery in the 1600s. Despite advances in technology

Jupiter’s moon Io is a remarkable celestial body, brimming with volcanic activity. With approximately 150 of its 400 active volcanoes erupting at any given time, Io is like a constantly bubbling cauldron of lava and gas. The recent observations made by the Juno probe’s Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) have shed new light on the
